Michamvi Sunset Bay
is located in the Michamvi
area on the east coast of Zanzibar Island
off the Indian Ocean Coast
Until recently this small South African owned lodge enjoyed one of the most remote locations on the island, on the western side of the Michamvi peninsular, but that has been much impaired by the development of a large resort right alongside.
Nonetheless it still remains a pleasant enough place, with a dozen rooms located in two storey blocks around a pool, a thatched restaurant tucked in between and an open-sided bar out over the beach.
The beach itself is very tidal and the sand does not have quite the same fine quality that it does elsewhere on the island. But this is compensated for by the tranquillity of the location.
